Dewaldt Heyns, Swartland

With his latest project, Dewaldt Heyns, one of the most talented South African winemakers, has finally achieved his lifelong dream of making wines from the ancient vines in his father’s vineyards in Paardeberg, Swartland. Inspired by his time spent learning his craft in the Rhône, it is clear to see its ‘Old World’ influence on his wines, especially his Weathered Hands Shiraz.

Review

“With a day job at Saronsberg, one of the best wineries in Tulbagh, Dewaldt Heyns somehow finds time to make a little of his own from his father’s old farm in Swartland (the label and brand name are a tribute to him). Among the Cape’s top Chenins, it’s one of few examples of the grape to be released with bottle age. Sourced from old vines on granite soils, this is the best of his releases, made with natural fermentation and older oak and showing impressive minerality. Drink 2016-2020.” Decanter.com

“Another extremely focused Chenin here with drive and direction in its richness and smokiness, making a delightful mouthful.” Tim Atkin MW, Decanter.com

“What a heavenly brightness there is to this wine: green apple and a touch of celery, with hints of melon, quince and pear compote.” Ronan Sayburn MS, Decanter.com

“Intriguing notes of vinyl and cassis leaf on the nose, flowing delicately on to black fruits and pear. A beguiling wine. It seduces you.” Greg Sherwood MW, Decanter.com

Weathered Hands Pinotage
Vintage: 2012
Country: South Africa
Region: Swartland
Colour: Red
Grape: 100% Pinotage
Size: 75cl

Coming from 40-year-old dry-farmed bush vines in Paardeberg in Swartland, Pinotage ‘Weathered Hands’ Dewaldt Heyns 2012 is gloriously aromatic with intense menthol-tinged dark berry fruits on the nose. Full bodied with ripe tannins and wonderfully concetrated, this shows quite how fantastic Swartland Pinotage can be!
